Scattered Thoughts...


This leftside page has been unfinished for days, the longest I think I have gone without journaling all year. But I promised to finish it and show you.
My dreams and nightmares have been full of stress and confusion. One was that I was in India and saw my daughter...but then I don't remember any more of it except that I woke up anxious.
(I hope I got to see the beauitful, colorful sari's.)
This morning, I dreamed that I went to a beauty salon and asked the girl working there if I could take a shower and wash my hair, because my power was off at home. Soon after, there were crowds of men, women, and children in this huge salon and I had a big overloaded totebag of unnecessary and jumbled belongings....in the shower.
Okay...
Anyway, today is cooler with less humidity and I feel more energy and ambition. Hopefully a little less dreamy, too!
Dreams, movies within our unconscious minds, are such a strange phenomenon.

Sorry in advance for the LONG response --
When I was a little girl my mom got really into dream interpretation. (She was also into psychology and how the mind works...) She had a dream dictionary that she used until the binding fell apart and the book wore to the point of practically dissolving. Friends would call her when they had strong dreams that stayed with them throughout the day and she’d piece together definitions with them as they worked through their thoughts and impressions.

Recently I found a dream dictionary online called ‘dream moods’ and some of the definitions are very similar to the ones in that book my mom used to use. I don't know what I think about dream interpretation overall, but it's fun to look up themes and see what it says. I take it all with a grain of salt I guess.
Here are some of the definitions for what you have shared about your dream.

Salon- To dream that you are at the salon, indicates your concerns with your looks. You may be overly conscious about your appearance and beauty. Perhaps you are trying too hard to impress others. The dream also suggests deception and cover-up of some situation. Alternatively, it may denote a new outlook toward life.
Shower - To dream that you are taking a shower in clear, fresh water, symbolizes spiritual or physical renewal and forgiveness. You are washing the burdens out of your life. Alternatively, the dream may be a metaphor that you are "showering" someone with gifts or love.
Washing- To dream that you are washing yourself, indicates that you are proud of your social life and personal endeavors. You may even receive some recognition and prestige. Alternatively, the dream represents the cleansing away of unhappy experiences or neglected emotions in your life. You are ready to make a fresh new start.
Crowd - To dream that you are in or part of a crowd, suggests that you need some space for yourself. You need solitude to reflect on a situation and recharge your energy. Consider also the familiar phrase of "going along with the crowd" which implies conformity and lack of individuality. Perhaps you feel that your own opinion doesn't count or matter. Alternatively, dreaming of a crowd means that you need to incorporate the various aspects of the crowd into your own persona. To see an unruly crowd in your dream, signifies that the worries and problems around you are pressing in on you. You are expressing great distress.

I am always pleased to wake after a busy confused dream - but a dream of saris would have been lovely.

I am loving all the pics from the flea market, and that garden! Oh, how I would love to have a pretty cutting garden like that! ♥

Dreams can be mysterious or symbolic... try not to think too much of them, unless you are searching for something...

;)

Ah yes, I remember seeing this page when it was a work in progress. Sounds like you have a busy head at the moment ... I think it helps to write jumbled dreams down, and it makes for a great journal page :-)
Thanks for shipping the earrings - can't wait! I'll let you know when I get them. Thanks!
